Frenzy

This week I've been in a full blown, have to make myself go to bed, frenzy of creativity. It's kind of exhausting. I did stop long enough to snap a few pics of my week in the studio. And write up an article for Art Jewelry Elements about the War of Art. I haven't been blogging much, but I have been taking a few minutes out of my day to share a couple photos and insights into my days on my Facebook page. Please go there and click like . I would love input on designs I'm playing with, or just to chat. Oh, and do you like the new look of my blog? I LOVE it! I finally got around to using my logo in my banner, added a few recent photos, and my friend Robin Koza tweaked the design, installed the new banner, color coordinated the background to my logo, added my own customized social media buttons to the right, and it looks so amazing! Here's what I've been up to this week: This shows the very beginning of the frenzy. These things have multiplied faster than...I don' t know. What multiplies really fast? Our junk drawer seems to give birth to at least 30 new ink pens every single day. So maybe my headpins multiply faster than ink pens...if that makes sense.

I came up with this new glass headpin and copper wire design when I was falling asleep Sunday night (or maybe it was Saturday night?) and could hardly wait to get to the torch the next morning to try it out. I love them, but wasn't sure if others would. However, people have given a big thumbs up so far. I have never seen anyone do anything like these before, so I'm cautiously hopeful I'm the first...

I got some brand new studio shoes. I LOVE these things, they are so cute!

  And even while sitting in front of the fire, relaxing with the fam, drinking a delicious glass of wine, I just HAD to do some viking knitting. I'm trying 24 gauge bronze wire. And yes, I'm using a yellow highlighter as the mandrel. Don't judge. It's all I could find at the lake cottage that would work well.

Hope you have a fun weekend! I will be working most of the weekend trying to meet some deadlines that are coming up fast.

Viking knitting looks really interesting - I haven't seen that before. i'm off to google it, don't forget to show us your progress!

Wow! Those are gorgeous headpins! I can see why you got immersed in making them. I have always wanted to do glass work, but I think it would be so very addicting. What fun you must have! Just curious, why special studio shoes? I've not heard that one before. Sounds like you've had a great week. And that glass of wine sounds really good...might have to go pick up a bottle myself.

The special studio shoes is more of a cleanliness issue than anything else. My studio is in the basement of my home. I don't want to be wearing my outside shoes around the house to go into the studio and I don't want to drag particles from whatever I might be working on into my house. That's all. I'm too lazy to get a pair of shoes, carry them to the studio, put them on, take them off, and carry them back to the mudroom :-)
